<p>Dr Chris Mitchell is the CEO and Founder of Audio Analytic, who develop sound recognition software that adds context-based intelligence into consumer technology products. In our conversation, you'll learn what the state of the art sound recognition systems can do, the types of sound events that are typically recognised, which consumer products they're integrated into, and the many benefits and new possibilities the technology affords to developers and users.&nbsp;</p><p>We discover the difference between sound recognition and speech recognition, how sound recognition provides the all important context for voice enabled devices to make the right decisions, and how smart devices can take advantage of this contextual knowledge. Then we dive into some of the technical details of how it all works, including 'better than real-time processing', edge computing vs the cloud, the need to train custom acoustic models, and how these machine learning models can run on low-resource devices like headphones using TinyML. Chris briefly explains the process of integrating the AI3 framework into your products, then we tackle the all important question of data privacy and security. &nbsp;</p><p>Many of the smart devices of future will rely on sound recognition to understand the context of their environments. Chris and his team are at the cutting edge of the sound recognition field and are long-time experts in the domain, so there's no better person to introduce us to this important technology.&nbsp;</p><p><b>Links from the show:&nbsp;</b></p><ul><li>Full show notes: <a href="https://voicetechpodcast.com/">https://voicetechpodcast.com</a></li><li>Audio Analytic: <a href="https://www.audioanalytic.com/">https://www.audioanalytic.com</a></li><li>Hive Hub case study: <a href="http://bit.ly/2IOlA9E">http://bit.ly/2IOlA9E</a></li><li>Dabble Lab: <a href="https://youtube.com/dabblelab">https://youtube.com/dabblelab</a></li><li>Manning books: <a href="https://www.manning.com/">https://www.manning.com</a> 40% off all books code: podvoicetech19&nbsp;</li><li>Voice-Connected Home 2019: <a href="https://bit.ly/2IZuVwc">https://bit.ly/2IZuVwc</a>, 20% discount code: VoiceTech&nbsp;</li></ul><p><b>Subscribe to get future episodes:&nbsp;</b></p><ul><li>Apple iTunes: <a href="https://apple.co/2LqW4ol">https://apple.co/2LqW4ol</a></li><li>Google Podcasts: <a href="http://bit.ly/voicetechpodcast-google">http://bit.ly/voicetechpodcast-google</a></li><li>Alexa: <a href="https://voicetechpodcast.com/alexa">https://voicetechpodcast.com/alexa</a></li><li>Spotify: <a href="https://spoti.fi/2IZr5hm">https://spoti.fi/2IZr5hm</a></li><li>Stitcher: <a href="http://bit.ly/voicetechpodcast-stitcher">http://bit.ly/voicetechpodcast-stitcher</a></li><li>Website: <a href="http://bit.ly/voicetechpodcast">http://bit.ly/voicetechpodcast</a></li></ul><p><b>Join the discussion:&nbsp;</b></p><ul><li>Weekly Newsletter: <a href="https://voicetechpodcast.com/newsletter">https://voicetechpodcast.com/newsletter</a></li><li>Sponsor the show: <a href="https://voicetechpodcast.com/donate">https://voicetechpodcast.com/donate</a></li><li>Medium blog: <a href="https://voicetechpodcast.com/medium">https://voicetechpodcast.com/medium</a> &nbsp;</li><li>Write for the blog: <a href="https://voicetechpodcast.com/publish">https://voicetechpodcast.com/publish</a></li><li>Email me: <a href="mailto:carl@voicetechpodcast.com">carl@voicetechpodcast.com</a></li><li>Follow on Twitter: <a href="http://bit.ly/voicetechpodcast-twitter">http://bit.ly/voicetechpodcast-twitter</a></li><li>Reddit: <a href="http://bit.ly/voicetechpodcast-reddit">http://bit.ly/voicetechpodcast-reddit</a></li><li>Facebook group: <a href="http://bit.ly/voicetechpodcast-facebook-group">http://bit.ly/voicetechpodcast-facebook-group</a></li><li>Facebook page: <a href="http://bit.ly/voicetechpodcast-facebook-page">http://bit.ly/voicetechpodcast-facebook-page</a></li></ul>

Fast Scalable Voice IoT Apps - Syed Ahmed, PubNub - Voice Tech Podcast ep.012
<p>Syed Ahmed is a Developer Advocate at PubNub, a global Data Stream Network and real-time infrastructure-as-a-service company based in San Francisco, California. PubNub's products allow developers to build realtime web, mobile, voice and IoT applications. Low network latency is especially important for voice enabled applications that integrate with IoT devices, as any delay during a conversational interaction can affect usability and frustrate users.&nbsp;</p><p>In this episode, Syed explains how PubNub solves the latency problem by using a serverless architecture of PubNub Blocks, and walks us through a simple real-world example of a voice enabled doorbell. We learn about the publisher-subscriber pattern that underpins this technology, and why building voice apps with PubNub is quicker, easier and much more scalable than other methods.&nbsp;</p><p>A nice surprise during this conversation was that using PubNub Blocks not only improves the network performance of voice apps, but can be used to add advanced features such as contextual memory between phrases, and even between voice devices on different platforms, allowing developers to build more advanced interactions. It's a great episode, so check it out!&nbsp;</p><p><b>Links from the show:&nbsp;</b></p><ul><li>Full show notes: <a href="https://voicetechpodcast.com/">https://voicetechpodcast.com</a> &nbsp;</li><li>PubNub Blocks: <a href="https://www.pubnub.com/docs/blocks-catalog">https://www.pubnub.com/docs/blocks-catalog</a></li><li>PubNub project example: <a href="https://hackernoon.com/voice-alexa-and-realtime-making-interactions-into-lasting-experiences-fa46aab9503b">https://hackernoon.com/voice-alexa-and-realtime-making-interactions-into-lasting-experiences-fa46aab9503b</a></li><li>More articles from Syed: <a href="https://medium.com/@nxsyed">https://medium.com/@nxsyed</a></li><li>Publish-subscribe pattern: <a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Publish%E2%80%93subscribe_pattern">https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Publish%E2%80%93subscribe_pattern</a></li><li>Syed's code examples on Github: <a href="https://github.com/nxsyed">https://github.com/nxsyed</a></li><li>Syed on Twitter: <a href="https://twitter.com/nxsyed">https://twitter.com/nxsyed</a></li><li>Syed on Insta: <a href="https://www.instagram.com/nxsyed/">https://www.instagram.com/nxsyed/</a> &nbsp;</li><li>Syed's personal site: <a href="https://www.nxsyed.me/">https://www.nxsyed.me/</a></li></ul><p><b>Subscribe to get future episodes:&nbsp;</b></p><ul><li>Apple iTunes: <a href="https://apple.co/2LqW4ol">https://apple.co/2LqW4ol</a></li><li>Google Podcasts: <a href="http://bit.ly/voicetechpodcast-google">http://bit.ly/voicetechpodcast-google</a> &nbsp;</li><li>Google Android: <a href="http://bit.ly/voicetechpodcast-android">http://bit.ly/voicetechpodcast-android</a> &nbsp;</li><li>Stitcher: <a href="http://bit.ly/voicetechpodcast-stitcher">http://bit.ly/voicetechpodcast-stitcher</a> &nbsp;</li><li>Spotify: <a href="https://spoti.fi/2IZr5hm">https://spoti.fi/2IZr5hm</a> &nbsp;</li><li>Alexa : <a href="http://bit.ly/voicetechpodcast-alexa">http://bit.ly/voicetechpodcast-alexa</a></li><li>Website: <a href="http://bit.ly/voicetechpodcast">http://bit.ly/voicetechpodcast</a></li></ul><p><b>Join the discussion:&nbsp;</b></p><ul><li>Newsletter: <a href="http://bit.ly/voicetechpodcast-newsletter">http://bit.ly/voicetechpodcast-newsletter</a> &nbsp;</li><li>Reddit: <a href="http://bit.ly/voicetechpodcast-reddit">http://bit.ly/voicetechpodcast-reddit</a> &nbsp;</li><li>Facebook group: <a href="http://bit.ly/voicetechpodcast-facebook-group">http://bit.ly/voicetechpodcast-facebook-group</a></li><li>Facebook page: <a href="http://bit.ly/voicetechpodcast-facebook-page">http://bit.ly/voicetechpodcast-facebook-page</a></li><li>Follow on Twitter: <a href="http://bit.ly/voicetechpodcast-twitter">http://bit.ly/voicetechpodcast-twitter</a></li><li>Email me: <a href="mailto:carl@voicetechpodcast.com">carl@voicetechpodcast.com</a></li></ul>

Hum a Fingerprint, Extract a Melody - Dogac Basaran, CNRS - Voice Tech Podcast ep.009
<p>This is the second part of my conversation with Dogac Basaran, a post-doctoral researcher at CNRS, the French national scientific research centre. If you missed the first part, you might want to go back and listen to the previous episode on Signal Processing Basics for Audio.</p><p>Today, in part 2 of 2, we explore Dogac's research into audio fingerprinting, alignment, and melody extraction. By analysing the magnitude of frequency peaks and their relative spacing, Dogac shows us how it's possible to create audio fingerprints that can be used to detect and match audio recordings, even if they contain noise or are incomplete. These fingerprints have a variety of uses, including aligning multiple recordings of a single speaker/performance, and identifying a particular recording.</p><p>We also discuss query by humming, the state-of-the-art technique that takes an audio fingerprint of a person humming a melody, and matches it to a database of music recordings. Dogac also explains why learning how to build neural networks has become an essential skill in this field.</p><p><b>Links from the show:</b></p><ul><li>Full show notes : <a href="http://bit.ly/voicetechpodcast">http://bit.ly/voicetechpodcast</a>&nbsp;</li><li>Dogac Basaran on Github: <a href="https://github.com/dogacbasaran">https://github.com/dogacbasaran</a></li><li>Dogac Basaran's websites: <a href="https://dbasaran.wp.imt.fr/">https://dbasaran.wp.imt.fr/</a> and <a href="http://dogacbasaran.com/">http://dogacbasaran.com/</a></li><li>Signal Processing MOOC on Coursera: <a href="https://www.coursera.org/learn/dsp">https://www.coursera.org/learn/dsp</a>&nbsp;</li><li>MATLAB: <a href="https://matlab.mathworks.com/">https://matlab.mathworks.com/</a></li></ul><p><b>Subscribe to get future episodes:</b></p><ul><li>Apple iTunes : <a href="https://apple.co/2LqW4ol">https://apple.co/2LqW4ol</a></li><li>Google Podcasts : <a href="http://bit.ly/voicetechpodcast-google">http://bit.ly/voicetechpodcast-google</a>&nbsp;</li><li>Google Android : <a href="http://bit.ly/voicetechpodcast-android">http://bit.ly/voicetechpodcast-android</a>&nbsp;</li><li>Stitcher : <a href="http://bit.ly/voicetechpodcast-stitcher">http://bit.ly/voicetechpodcast-stitcher</a>&nbsp;</li><li>Spotify : <a href="https://spoti.fi/2IZr5hm">https://spoti.fi/2IZr5hm</a>&nbsp;</li><li>Alexa : <a href="http://bit.ly/voicetechpodcast-alexa">http://bit.ly/voicetechpodcast-alexa</a></li><li>Website : <a href="http://bit.ly/voicetechpodcast">http://bit.ly/voicetechpodcast</a></li></ul><p><b>Join the discussion:</b></p><ul><li>Newsletter : <a href="http://bit.ly/voicetechpodcast-newsletter">http://bit.ly/voicetechpodcast-newsletter</a>&nbsp;</li><li>Reddit : <a href="http://bit.ly/voicetechpodcast-reddit">http://bit.ly/voicetechpodcast-reddit</a>&nbsp;</li><li>Facebook group : <a href="http://bit.ly/voicetechpodcast-facebook-group">http://bit.ly/voicetechpodcast-facebook-group</a></li><li>Facebook page : <a href="http://bit.ly/voicetechpodcast-facebook-page">http://bit.ly/voicetechpodcast-facebook-page</a></li><li>Follow on Twitter : <a href="http://bit.ly/voicetechpodcast-twitter">http://bit.ly/voicetechpodcast-twitter</a></li><li>Email me : <a href="mailto:carl@voicetechpodcast.com">carl@voicetechpodcast.com</a></li></ul><p><b>Support the Voice Tech Podcast:</b></p><ul><li>Tell a friend about us or share on social media!</li><li>Leave a 5 star review on iTunes: <a href="https://apple.co/2LqW4ol">https://apple.co/2LqW4ol</a></li><li>Leave a 5 star review on Stitcher: <a href="http://bit.ly/voicetechpodcast-stitcher">http://bit.ly/voicetechpodcast-stitcher</a></li><li>Become a patron at: <a href="http://bit.ly/voicetechpodcast-patreon">http://bit.ly/voicetechpodcast-patreon</a></li></ul>

Signal Processing Basics for Audio - Dogac Basaran, CNRS - Voice Tech Podcast ep.008
<p>Dogac Basaran is a post-doctoral researcher at CNRS, the French national scientific research centre. Today, in part 1 of 2, Dogac gives us a crash course in signal processing, where we learn what signal processing is and discover some of its many applications.&nbsp;</p><p>Leveraging his teaching experience, Dogac uses simple language and real-world examples to explain the fundamental signal processing concepts that are used in voice technology today. He defines frequency, period, and stability, and describes how sound cards use sampling and the Nyquist theorem to convert analogue signals into digital.</p><p>He then recommends some good educational resources and software packages, so you can learn more about signal processing and get started right away on your own programming projects.</p><p>Correction [21/08/2018]: The term 'stationarity' was cited in the episode, but this should have been 'stability'.</p><p><b>Links from the show:</b></p><ul><li>Dogac Basaran on Github: <a href="https://github.com/dogacbasaran">https://github.com/dogacbasaran</a></li><li>Dogac Basaran's websites: <a href="https://dbasaran.wp.imt.fr/">https://dbasaran.wp.imt.fr/</a> and <a href="http://dogacbasaran.com/">http://dogacbasaran.com/</a></li><li>Signal Processing MOOC on Coursera: <a href="https://www.coursera.org/learn/dsp">https://www.coursera.org/learn/dsp</a>&nbsp;</li><li>MATLAB: <a href="https://matlab.mathworks.com/">https://matlab.mathworks.com/</a></li><li>Python Scipy STFT package: <a href="https://docs.scipy.org/doc/scipy/reference/generated/scipy.signal.stft.html">https://docs.scipy.org/doc/scipy/reference/generated/scipy.signal.stft.html</a>&nbsp;</li><li>Humming databases: Jang, ThinkIT, IOSCAS and Task2</li><li>ISMIR association: <a href="http://www.ismir.net/">http://www.ismir.net/</a></li><li>ISMIR 2018 conference: <a href="http://ismir2018.ircam.fr/">http://ismir2018.ircam.fr/</a></li><li>CNRS: <a href="http://www.cnrs.fr/">http://www.cnrs.fr/</a></li><li>IRCAM: <a href="https://www.ircam.fr/">https://www.ircam.fr/</a></li></ul><p><b>Subscribe to get future episodes:</b></p><ul><li>Apple iTunes : <a href="https://apple.co/2LqW4ol">https://apple.co/2LqW4ol</a></li><li>Google Podcasts : <a href="http://bit.ly/voicetechpodcast-google">http://bit.ly/voicetechpodcast-google</a>&nbsp;</li><li>Google Android : <a href="http://bit.ly/voicetechpodcast-android">http://bit.ly/voicetechpodcast-android</a>&nbsp;</li><li>Stitcher : <a href="http://bit.ly/voicetechpodcast-stitcher">http://bit.ly/voicetechpodcast-stitcher</a>&nbsp;</li><li>Spotify : <a href="https://spoti.fi/2IZr5hm">https://spoti.fi/2IZr5hm</a>&nbsp;</li><li>Alexa : <a href="http://bit.ly/voicetechpodcast-alexa">http://bit.ly/voicetechpodcast-alexa</a></li><li>Website : <a href="http://bit.ly/voicetechpodcast">http://bit.ly/voicetechpodcast</a></li></ul><p><b>Join the discussion:</b></p><ul><li>Newsletter : <a href="http://bit.ly/voicetechpodcast-newsletter">http://bit.ly/voicetechpodcast-newsletter</a>&nbsp;</li><li>Reddit : <a href="http://bit.ly/voicetechpodcast-reddit">http://bit.ly/voicetechpodcast-reddit</a>&nbsp;</li><li>Facebook group : <a href="http://bit.ly/voicetechpodcast-facebook-group">http://bit.ly/voicetechpodcast-facebook-group</a></li><li>Facebook page : <a href="http://bit.ly/voicetechpodcast-facebook-page">http://bit.ly/voicetechpodcast-facebook-page</a></li><li>Follow on Twitter : <a href="http://bit.ly/voicetechpodcast-twitter">http://bit.ly/voicetechpodcast-twitter</a></li><li>Email me : <a href="mailto:carl@voicetechpodcast.com">carl@voicetechpodcast.com</a></li></ul><p><b>Support the Voice Tech Podcast:</b></p><ul><li>Tell a friend about us or share on social media!</li><li>Leave a 5 star review on iTunes: <a href="https://apple.co/2LqW4ol">https://apple.co/2LqW4ol</a></li></ul>
